Artificial cells, which are engineered particles that mimic one or many functions of biological cells, have attracted much attention in recent decades as a new technology. In a previous study, artificial cells were prepared using chicken eggs and sphingosine-DNA. The resulting DNA crown cells were surrounded by a membrane containing lipid and DNA, which was formed with egg white components. The study describes a novel method that allows the easy preparation of DNA crown cells using adenosine and monolaurin.
